David Klein: Making 16mm look like 8mm

From American Cinematographer, Shooting for Laughs by David E. Williams (March 1999)

During the filming of Carlo's Wake, four flashback sequences needed to have a...

"Home-movie look that could represent four distinct visions. Originally, we thought about shooting them in super 8mm, but we didn't have the budget to do the blow-up from super 8 to 35mm, so we just shot in 16mm, shooting two versions with 7239 reversal film and two with 7298, which I pushed to increase the grain and emulate that home-movie feel."

Klein notes that these sequences also feature more expressive lighting with contrast and blown-out highlights, which adds flavor to the film's overall look.
